Each item will add immediate value to your daily life and this collection of gear, apparel, and accessories can be purchased in full or individually by following any of the links below!

First up today is the Rotate North Altitude Pilot’s Watch ($333) which comes in a Black Watch/Blue Face style but it also comes in Black/Black if you’d prefer that. This watch is powered by a self-winding NH35a, 21,600 bhp automatic, 24 jewel movement that’s extremely reliable and easily serviceable so this watch will last you a lifetime. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion but it’s built as a perfect everyday and adventure watch.

These Filson Service Boot in Whiskey Leather ($348) are as world-class of a pair of boots as you’ll find. They are handmade in Portugal, triple stitched at stress points for durability, and they’re made with thick, full-grain roughout leather that’s oiled for durability and water resistance. These boots have a suede-lining on the toe box to minimize any foot slippage. These will sell out in most sizes so check ’em out before they’re gone.

The The Hardtack Sweater by Taylor Stitch ($248) comes in three colors (Olive, Oak, or Navy) each with the iconic subtle Donegal flecks that add depth and texture. These sweaters are made with yak wool that’s as soft as cashmere but more durable. The elbow patches are genuine tan sheepskin and this sweater’s finished with a ribbed neck and cuff with double thickness.

You can pair that sweater with the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants ($98) which come in Slim or Straight cuts and four different colors to choose from. Corduroy Season is the best season when it comes to pants. I’ve always loved cords, their fit, feel, and versatility and this pair is made 8oz blended fabric that’s perfect for year-round wear.

Here we have a slick everyday carry pocket knife from Monthly Knife Club. If you’re not familiar with Monthly Knife Club then today’s your lucky day. For between $10 to $45/month they will send you a brand new world-class pocket knife each month so you can beef up your collection and gift them out to friends if you want. Monthly Knife Club also has individual knives for sale which you can click here to purchase. This really is a cool way to take the guesswork out of buying pocket knives and this way the experts can make the best decisions.

Next up are the Cloos x Brady Collection ‘Ristretto’ Sunglasses ($189) which is part of a custom collection between the G.O.A.T. Tom Brady and Christopher Cloos. Thinking back a year I could I simply could not imagine a world where Tom Brady would leave the New England Patriots and come play for my Tampa Bay Buccaneers and relieve me of Jameis Winston’s INTs every Sunday. If you told me that was a possibility I would’ve laughed in your face. But here we are. Me, flipping on my TV on Sundays to root for the G.O.A.T. and his gorgeous Christopher Cloos custom shades. These ‘Ristretto’ Sunglasses are made with premium biodegradable Italie Acetat + M49 Mazzuccheli frames and polarized CR39 lenses, they also come with a signature case + cleaning cloth.

These Hestra Basic Wool Gloves ($45) come in Olive, Grey, or Dark Grey. They are woll-blended gloves with an insulating layer and brushed poly lining. The insulation is a breathable and warm 3M™ Thinsulate™. If you are looking for an affordable pair of soft, cozy, and go-to everyday gloves then these are those.

Next, we’ve got The Hardin Carabiner by The James Brand ($40) which is a particularly excellent expression of their impeccable craftsmanship and design. It is drop-forged for consistency and superior strength and the dual compartment design enables you to keep your keys + other items securely attached. It is constructed out of aerospace-grade 6061 aluminum that’s both lightweight and crazy strong.

We round it out with the Ledlenser MT18 ‘Brighter Than A Car Headlight’ Flashlight. This incredibly powerful flashlight weighs only 21.9 oz (620 grams) and measures 6.74-inches which means you can easily tuck it into your backpack or center console. This flashlight pumps out 3,000 lumens and stretches nearly 1,800 feet. If you want to treat yourself to something spectacular this flashlight isn’t cheap ($199) but you’ll be buying one of the best EDC products on the planet.

Last up is the Filson Dryden Ballistic Nylon Backpack ($225) which is built with 7 oz Martexin waxed sailcloth. This ensures the backpack is extremely weather/water-resistant and abrasion-resistant. This backpack is handcrafted in Pennsylvania, has an interior 15″ laptop sleeve, countless pockets throughout, and robust brass hardware.
